RCC 4th Stage

My father was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney cancer that spread to his bones and one lung. He has been batteling it for over a year now. If anyone has any new knowledge of clinical trials going on that would great. We have been working with Sloan-Kettering and Johns-Hopkins. Also if there are any Stage 4 survivors out there, please any words of advice and encouragement would be helpful.

Take care and be well,

Hey Teesa,

You couldn't be in better hands than by working with Sloan and Hopkins. Sloan is #1 in the world for cancer treatment as a whole, and Hopkins is #1 in several areas of cancer research. A good friend of mine is an oncology fellow there. Just don't be afraid to ask them lots of questions.

How do you find out what places are the best -- whose treatment success rates are the highest -- for a particular kind of cancer? I too am interested in kidney cancer in particular.
